The trial of San Diego Police Officer Frank White, the officer accused of shooting an Oceanside woman and her 8-year old son, begins Thursday (May 28th).

Rachel Silva, 27, and her son were both seriously injured when they were shot by Frank White on March 15, 2008 in an Oceanside parking lot.

Oceanside police have described the incident as road rage. Silva was shot twice in the arm and her son, who was in the passenger seat, was shot in the leg. White maintains that he opened fire because he feared for his life and that of his wife.
